Beee-utiful Polka Doodles Challenge

Here is my card for the first Polka Doodles challenge. As you may have guessed by now, I like the clean and simple approach. When I first started cardmaking, I loaded up my cards with embellishments so much that it got to the point where it was overwhelming. I had to teach myself to keep things to a minimum. This sketch had a lot going on, so I didn't want to add anything extra to it. The bee was cut with the Pooh and Friends Cricut cartridge, the yellow side panel was embossed with the Cuttlebug Forest Branches embossing folder. The stamp set is an old Hero Arts set and I do not have the name of it. I purposely stamped the phrase crooked because I was trying to re-create the flight of a bee. I think this would make a great baby card, especially because it is gender specific. Now I just need one of my friends to get pregnant (hint hint Christina hint hint)!!
